We have just moved from Connect 7 to 8.2. Our cameras and video capture cards are all have 16:9 capablity. Under version 7, we had the option of setting the Camera and Voice pod to Portrait, Standard, or Landscape; and once set to Landscape, the Pod showed the full 16:9 widescreen frame. For our HD web cameras (e.g., MS LifeCam Studio) the version 8 software seems to be trimming the sides to produce a 4:3 picture; for our HD capture cards (e.g., Ospry), the software is "letterboxing" the video. Does anyone know how do we can display the full 16:9 that the video sources are capable of producing?
I have the same problem. It's become a 16x9 world that Adobe Connect can't join. There is a 3rd party solution, but the video isn't recorded, so it's a non-starter for me. I'm really hopin AC 9 will support widescreen video sources.
